Next week Mike, my brother, Mila and I will be in Florida! My heart is leaping in excitement! Just thinking about unlimited family time makes me giddy! We will be leaving our big little buddy behind, which ughhh breaks my heart. (Worst part of having a big dog, you can't take them with you when you travel) So I made sure to include him in today's post! haha

Packing is so much fun, what is dreadful is unpacking! So here are 3 easy things you can do that will help this process not be so dreadful.

1. As you pack, clean your house. My favorite thing after a wonderful vacation is coming home to a clean house. 

2. Do laundry, make sure you leave your hamper empty before you leave. You will be so thankful you did! 

3. Wash your sheets. One of my favorite things about staying at a hotel is their fresh white clean sheets. Obtain the same feeling by washing your sheets before you leave so when you come home, it will feel as you never left! :) 

As I started to pack, I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the things I will be bringing or wish I was bringing! Are any of you ladies traveling soon? Mike will turn 30 this year and I wanted to plan a special birthday trip for him and I...any suggestions? Hope each of you has a wonderful day and thank you for being a part of this blog! xoxo
